Palm Beach | Ratings & Reviews

"A group of wealthy old friends reunite in the Australian drama Palm Beach, which was the opening night film of this year's Sydney Film Festival. The actors are impressive but the stakes are so low it's hard to care."

"Would be just about bearable if the acting, writing or direction could rustle anything relatable from the glam gathering."

Herald SunHerald Sun

"When I say about Palm Beach, "You've seen it all before..." - trust me."


"It’s not a particularly emotional exercise, nor is it a cerebral one, unless the middling problems of wealthy white people get your synapses firing."

"This isn't so much a movie as a Venn diagram of working talent, cashing in their chips to have a good time together creating accessible entertainment."


"There's nothing conceptually wrong with dramas about affluence or affluent people of course, but boy does it take a while to feel even vaguely sympathetic to the troubles confronting Ward's characters."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"A less likeable group of actors could easily have been upstaged by the conspicuous perfection of the setting and the décor. This bunch hold their own, but a sharper script would have made them shine even brighter."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"Palm Beach works best an ensemble showcase filled with ample talent making the most of their requisite lively and serious moments, as directed by a filmmaker with an attentive and generous eye."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"What makes the whole thing work is Ward's facility with performers, and the wrinkles that are threaded into plot points we've seen a million times before."
